Steven Soderbergh Plots HBO ‘Choose-Your-Own-Adventure’ Movie With Sharon Stone
Steven Soderbergh is no stranger to playing with format, but the Magic Mike director’s latest might require a new Emmy category, by his own admission. Soderbergh has reportedly begun work on a new HBO movie titled Mosaic, featuring Sharon Stone and a unique option that lets audiences choose the ending.
Per Entertainment Weekly, HBO has kept mum on the project, refusing to confirm rumors that either Sharon Stone would star, or that Mosaic could feature multiple endings, chosen by an app distributed to the audience. HBO and Soderbergh have acknowledged at least something of the project, stating:
I believe the good people at HBO are genuinely enthusiastic about Mosaic for two reasons: first, it represents a fresh way of experiencing a story and sharing that experience with others; second, it will require a new Emmy category, and we will be the only eligible nominee.
It’s been a long time since Soderbergh purportedly retired from film-making, while the director maintains an active relationship with HBO by way of Cinemax’s The Knick, but does Mosaic sound more sophisticated than a grown-up Goosebumps? Can Orange is the New Black get in on that new Emmy category? How long before HBO unleashes any genuine details?
